As I noted in the linked thread, I really doubt this happened. Back in 1970, there was no Deadbase, no internet, no sharing of setlists. But there sure were a lot of "alleged" shows, sets, etc. Some of this made its way into local media, and certainly plenty of heads passed bogus tales around. Another example is the "alleged" Ugano's nightclub show from 2-12-70. I saw the Fillmore East run, and, believe me, had they been uptown, we would have heard about it then. Some of those late 1970 shows in Brooklyn are also dubious. Just ask any of the surviving Hell's Honkies who never missed a note.

Had the Dead played this "alleged" show, word of it would have slowly spread in 1970 or 1971. It would be too unique to remain in the closet.

I remember an acquaintance who swore up and down that they played "Unbroken Chain" in 1974.

Remember, as noted, pretty much all of the spring of 1970 was taped by Bear--if not all of it. Surely there would be some artifact.

I am not the final word on this subject.Let the debate continue.

After all, Bear still swears that the 2-11, 13, and 14 Fillmore East shows were one set each. I saw two each night
And they did not play "Unbroken Chain" at either one of them.

Minor correction to the statement that Bear recorded the spring 70 shows. Actually, after the New Orleans bust on Jan. 31, his bail was revoked when they returned to California at the end of February, and he was sent to jail (Oakland Tribune, February 27, 1970: 44). He said in an email to me while I was researching the 4/26 Poynette show,"I was in CA. Bob Matthews was acting soundman. I know nothing whatever about that tour."

I just cracked Harp after reading this thread, but there is now 4 empty bottles. Maybe I have a few spirits with me this evening awaiting my reseed of this one >
